|My new organized empty closet.|
How could I be thankful about this? Well sometimes it takes a calamity to force you to become more organized. Here is why I am grateful for my collapsed closet.
- I was thankful to have the opportunity to go through all of my closet belongings. I made my 3 piles, keep, give away to goodwill, and absolute trash. I have lived in our house for over 20 years. Some of my clothes are even older than that. I decided if I had not worn a piece of clothing in the last 10 years it should be thrown out or be given away. I felt so much freer parting with pants that have not fit me in the last decade. Sometimes you just have to wake up and smell reality.
- Thanks to my husband Spencer, who after I managed to empty the closet was able to hammer the shelf and clothing rod back to new! Thanks to my daughter Becky who helped me hold things in place while my husband happily hammered away.
- I am so thankful that I was able to part with 2/3rds of my belongings! Life is so much simpler to manage with less stuff.
- I am thankful to have caught the organizing bug. I am determined to get rid of the clutter, the unused underappreciated items that do nothing to contribute to me or my families happiness.
